As a law firm, Thompsons Solicitors was founded as part of the workers movement, and we have paved the way for workers’ rights over the years: improving working conditions, protecting pay and fighting for health and safety regulations. We have never and will never act for insurance companies or employers that are not trade unions, because we believe there is a conflict of interest in law firms that do. We only act for the injured and mistreated.

We currently work with 19 unions in Northern Ireland, offering their members the very best in union and legal representation for a variety of claims including asbestos related diseases and road traffic accidents in Northern Ireland.
Our dedicated lawyers based in Belfast work alongside trade unions to ensure members know how to take advantage of their union’s legal scheme to defend their rights should they need us.
